Another view into my life
So everyone is thinking that the economy is in good shape and has weathered the latest rise in oil prices. I think "we ain't seen nothing yet!" The reason is that everyone is focused on the price of gasoline. Fact is, plastics are made from oil, trucks deliver almost everything the economy uses and creates. Did anyone see the price of diesel fuel? Time was that the price of truck fuel was quite a bit lower than unleaded gas. Not anymore! I've needed a new roof on my house. In the last 6 months, the materials, which are all oil based products, has gone up by almost a third. The really bad news with this is that the supply house said the manufacturers have already put them on notice to expect ANOTHER 25% increase prices by summer. I'm thinking I should replace my roof now. I still need to get land yet too.
